Photographer's Note

Based in Aswan, south Egypt, it's quite popular to take a 3 hr bus ride at around 4.00/5.00am to get to this site in the far south of the country for sunrise. A few more minutes later and the light would be quite contrasty on the Ramses II carvings, and the scene would be filled with tourists.

One of the statues has been damaged from an earthquake, and its head and remains are visbable in front of the temple.
